a really satisfying sandwich

This delicious baguette was inspired by one of the many consumed on our trip to Paris.  Today is Ash Wednesday, which for us is a day of partial fasting and abstaining from meat (apart from the spiritual significance, of course).  This sandwich was the perfect end to my day - so simple, and so delicious.   You don't want to miss out on this one.

Here's what you need.
1 fresh baguette
3 hard boiled eggs
1 medium tomato
12-15 thin slices of cucumber
3 green leaf lettuce leaves
3 oz sliced provolone
3 tablespoons hummus 
salt and pepper to taste

Slice the baguette lengthwise.  You can hollow it out a bit to make room for the fillings, if you want.
Spread both sides with hummus (you can also use mayo - that's what we had in France. Hummus gave it great flavor, though - and it is much better for you).
Layer cheese, cucumber, and tomato.
Thinly slice eggs with a sharp knife.  Layer on top of the tomatoes.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and top with the other half of your baguette.
Slice into quarters and enjoy!
